More 'Meninist' Bollocks

"I understand feminism to be a social saviour because it liberates everyone without exclusion" - Morrissey, Autobiography

I've said before that my problem with 'meninism' isn't the term as such, it's the primitive attitude and ideology behind it. It's hard to believe, but 'meninism' is actually becoming a serious thing, with an actual political party and actual followers who actually believe in its doctrine. There are now jumpers and t-shirts being manufactured and sold brandishing the "#Meninism" logo, so it's even seeping it's way into retail. Crikey.

'Justice for Men and Boys (and the women who love them)' is a scarily real political party that wants the reinstatement of patriarchy through the disintegration of gender equality, comparing feminists to Nazis. In response to a tweet of mine regarding this madness, a male friend said: "5 minutes of research reveals he [founder by Mike Buchanan, author of literary classics like 'Feminism: The Ugly Truth'] formed it because he's butt hurt his ex wife wasn't ruined in their divorce. Prick."

J4MB hope to remove all women from senior positions on company boards or positions which will threaten male dominance in general, want to restrict women's access to safe abortions, and plan to abolish the Equality Act. Buchanan worries “life is going to become markedly worse for men and boys if Labour win the next general election" because candidates like Yvette Cooper want educational institutions to teach young boys that feminism is not to be feared and is in fact a fair perspective for all. But feminism to the ever insightful Buchanan will "brainwash them [schoolboys] into becoming lifelong unquestioning slaves to women". Wrong, just mind-boggling wrong.
